    Headphones for the Gym

    I'm sick to the teeth of my normal 'in ear' headphones falling out constantly when I'm down the gym! I'm therefore looking for a suitable set that will stay firmly in/on when on when using the gym. Any suggestions welcome!

    I've had these now for 2 years and they are great. The addition of Bluetooth means no pesty cables annoying me as I run.

    Has anyone tried bone conductive headphones? Something like the Chilli Air?
    I'm keen to try these for my bike commute, but no shops seem to stock them. I'd rather not gamble fifty groats on something that might be awful.

    I think a change to something with a silicone flange would probably help
